: : : Hello,

: : : someone I know, challenged me to this tiny riddle which I am having a hard time figuring out...

: : : He told me that, there are 3 words in English that ends with the letters "gry."

: : : First one is Hungry, Second one is Angry, what is the third one?

: : : He even mentioned something about the origin of whoopee...which I find amusing.

: : We've visited this little amusement before. Just type "gry" into the search feature, above.

: Allright maybe I'm stupid, but I searched on GRY and all I got were a lot of pages and no actual answer.

: So put me out of my misery - please!

The other one is PUGGRY--a light scarf wrapped around a pith helmet. I got it a bit wrong in my last posting. Normally spelled PUGGREE.
